So that’s the third month of the year gone – 2018 is FLYING by already! This year I’ve realised I’ve been lazy. A pretty lazy blogger, too. I’ve spent the last couple of months catching colds and bugs and feeling generally “meh”, and neglecting my blog and all social media platforms, but for April I’m determined to do more.
I want to plan more things, relax in the evenings after work and push myself to attend more blogging events. I’ve had to turn down a few because of illness this month, but I’m determined to do more in April and moving forwards. Plus, once the warmer weather finally appears, I’m sure I’ll feel much more inclined to just go out and do more. Here’s what I’ve been up to in March.
Baileys hot chocolate
The Beast from the East part 2 hit Chelmsford again at the beginning of the month, so I indulged in one too many Baileys hot chocolates through the month! I picked up a bottle of Salted Carmel baileys in Duty Free on the way back from a christmas break to Prague, and it’s the best drink EVER. I wish I bought a couple more bottles. A splash of it in a hot chocolate makes it deliciously sweet, and then sprinkled with mini marshmallows makes for the best hot chocolate!
To get out the house for a bit, I went on a super long snowy walk with my sister around town and parks near to where we live. It was good to get out and have some fresh air – and I don’t think my FitBit has ever seen so many steps in one day!!
Boyfriend photography points to James here, who snapped me looking all cute on the floral swing benches in Covent Garden. He got the shot pretty spot on – don’t you think?
School of Rock The Musical
James and I had a fun date night this month. We had dinner at Maxwell’s Bar & Grill (a decent meal and cocktails but pretty pricey) and then walked over to the New London theatre to watch the School of Rock musical. I love west end shows and this has to be one of my favourites so far! The actors were all amazing, singing was fantastic and the venue was a good size to feel close enough to the stage, no matter where you were sat. I’d definitely recommend booking tickets to see this next time you’re in London.
I became a Godmother
I became a Godmother, yay! I went to Somerset with my family to attend the Christening, and had a really lovely day. I was a little nervous beforehand as I wasn’t sure what to expect, but the christening went well and we managed to get some lovely group photos too.
Dinner at Gökyüzü in Walthamstow
For the bank holiday weekend, James and I headed into town and had dinner at Gökyüzü, a new Turkish restaurant on the high street. We both love a good kebab and this meal was no exception. The staff were friendly and attentitive, the restaurant had a great atmosphere and the decor is stunning. We were given warm pitta bread and tzatziki to eat whilst browsing the menu, and a big bowl of fresh salad with beetroot, carrot and greens. I ordered a chicken shish with rice and James had a mixed Kebab dish; the meat was flavoursome, juicy and super fresh, and the accompanying side dishes were devoured in seconds! We headed to Turtle Bay for cocktails afterwards, and then spent the rest of the evening eating allll the Easter eggs!
I’m looking forward to seeing what I get up to in April! How was your March?
